Gunfire Hits Car Traveling on 15th Street East

The couple began to hear gunshots and then realized their back window had shattered.

The rear window of a car traveling on 15th Street East was shattered by gunfire Saturday.

A man and a woman were driving south on 15th Street East, near the 1500 block, when they began to hear several gunshots, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

After the gunshots began, the back window shattered, and that's when the couple told investigators that they realized that they were being shot at.

Neither victim was injured. There is no suspect information at this time.

I have no idea where you pulled the map from but it is totally confusing. It appears that they are labeling 15 Street east as SR 70. The roads do not even travel in the same directions but are perpendicular. 15 Street crosses SR 70 near the 55 Avenue area, so where did this shooting take place. Going by the address it looks like the rear of Tropicana which is nowhere near SR 70. Just saying.
